    [] Sure is, and I wasn't even at the top.

    Really so how many more floors was there to go?

    Wow really nice view from that height Brisbane just keeps growing I've lost count of the new buildings in the CBD since I arrived in BNE
    Was this with the TS lens ?

    Wonderful. I love shots like this that let you see a place you know in a way you've not seen it before. The way you can see all Kangaroo Point laid out and how it connects to the land at Woolloongabba is stunning. Thanks.

    [] Hmm, ok after some research, maybe we were at the top. Apparently there are 74 floors and we were on the 74th. D'oh. Hard to tell as the lifts have no buttons in them, it's all swipe-card style "smart" lifts.
    [] Just the humble 17-40L on this one, 5 shots in panorama.
    [] Yeah it's quite fascinating really.

    Nice pano stitch Dave. Must do more of this myself even if not from such a lofty height. F4 is an interesting choice I would have thought a greater depth of field was necessary although the image looks fine...
    I love the leading lines of the bridge and shadows

    [] You can see the bay off to the left in this shot, but yes, I believe there are apartments that face that way.
    [] Thanks :)
    [] Alas, had to hustle with the bride and get to the church on time ;-)
    [] More than likely!
    [] 'tis only the 17-40L Neil, not the TS-E 17L ;-)
    [] f/4 gives me everything from 3m in front of me to infinity in focus, no need to stop down more. :)

    Very nice. Potential Riverfire vantage point? :)

    [] If you are loaded and don't mind shooting through glass. There are no balconies and the windows only open a short way and not usefully.

    [] I wouldn't mind a less rushed go from up here, maybe a blue hour pano. Dunno if that'd be possible without spending a lot of money on a room though.
